Chris Roush, business journalism professor at University of North Carolina, presents “Uncovering Public Information on Private Companies” during the free Reynolds Center workshop, “Uncovering the Best Local Business Stories,” in Lexington, Ky.
The daylong workshop covered tips on how to find good stories in the business of government, how to cover economic-development agencies at the state and local levels, and how to find public information on private companies.
Presenters also discussed how to find stories in small business and publicly available databases, and how to localize national and international stories for your audience.
This free training was specifically geared toward community journalists and generalists on tight budgets and small staffs. Another workshop by the same name was later held in Fort Worth.
